Paiste is a Swiss-based Estonian musical instrument manufacturing company who have been operating and making cymbals 1906. It is the world's third largest manufacturer of cymbals, gongs, and metal percussion and can boast John Bonham amongst their endorsers. Paiste are are responsible for several cymbal-making innovations including the use of B8 bronze as a cymbal alloy, the sound edge hi-hat and unlathed cymbals.

The 2002 range are built on the foundation of classic cymbals and have been expanded to suit the needs of modern popular music. The beginnings of the 2002 range and it's predecessor 'Giant Beat' are intimately related to the early period of rock music. Around the mid 1960s, Paiste discovered and started experimenting with the CuSn8 (or B8) bronze alloy, an alloy which differed to the usual B20 bronze used to manufacture most cymbals - CuSn8 bronze consists of 92% copper and 8% tin, compared to 80% copper and 20% tin in B20 bronze.

In the early 1970s bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and AC/DC were taking Rock to new levels of energy and volume. This required Paiste to work on new cymbals to match the revolutionary blend of electrified volume and diversity. The 2002 range was introduced in 1971 as fusion of the sophisticated qualities of the early Formula 602 range and the energy and brilliance of the 'Giant Beat', together with the revolutionary B8 bronze. Drummers like John Bonham, with his thunderous power and groundbreaking style, or Carl Palmer with his dazzling speed and drumming technique, and Ian Paice with his crisp, tight, and powerful playing style are inspired by and bring out the best in Paiste 2002 cymbals.
